Starting Oct. 28, Extreme Home Makeover by Makasha Copeland paints a human portrait of a contemporary Tejano family willing to go to the extreme for a spot on the popular, rags-to-riches TV show of the same name.
Following the Vega family who must fight to make their video application stand out, this earnest satire explores family dynamics in the face of financial hardship. Extreme Home Makeover is a beautifully complex, bold, funny, and hopeful story about a family striving for the American dream and begs the question – in a world where so many receive so little, how much do miracles cost?
The show runs through Nov. 21 at Theatre Exile at 1340 S. 13th Street. Visit https://theatreexile.org/shows/extreme-home-makeover/ or call 215-218-4022.
